Tees with Memories

I was very lucky a few weeks ago to find a Born in the USA t-shirt, it was totally unexpected as I was actually looking through some cheap, I mean economically sensible, shirts for hubby when I spotted it.   Apparently my eyes lit up so hubby had to say those words we all love to hear - "Buy it!"

I used to love Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA album and would play it constantly as a teen.   I was very considerate towards my family by the way - I always made sure that the record player (yes, the album was on vinyl) was turned up loud so that they could all enjoy the Boss belting out his songs!

Buying the t-shirt brought back lots of memories and isn't it great that a simple piece of clothing could do that?   That is the beauty of t-shirts, you can wear them in comfort while reliving past memories.   March 21st is National Memory Day so why don't you celebrate the day by wearing a tee that brings back memories for you?

My hubby was looking for Bluto t-shirts a couple of months ago (long story and I don't really understand it all) to take on a boys week away with him.   This led him to 'discover' one of my webpages - 80s Movie Tees - after he was impressed at actually finding something by his wife from his work computer (obviously this must've been during his lunch break!) he proceeded to have a great trip down memory lane!

Last October my dad spent way too much time in hospital and on one of the days I wore a Spandau Ballet t-shirt from their Reformation Tour.   As I walked into the kitchenette area of the ward to get dad some ice one of the aides came up to me and whispered 'you know you're showing your age don't you', how rude was my first thought, until I realized that he was still talking - 'so did you see them on tour?'.    We then had a great discussion about Spandau Ballet and I thought yes I am showing my age, but I really don't care!

Why am I talking about showing my age?   Well March 22nd is National As Young As You Feel Day!   Having Memory Day followed by As Young As You Feel Day does seem a little ironic to me, but they are great excuses for wearing 80s tees at the beginning of the week, now to work on my excuse for the rest of the year!  


  1. I didnt know there were such days.. I should do something to commemorate them..

  2. I am constantly amazed at how many different 'holidays' there are!

  3. LOL - I am wearing my giant squid shirt and it is March 21 here. So, is it a memory of when I got to meet another really cool giant squid? But on a much more important note - next time your eyes light up, be sure you are looking at a cool car, a boat or a cruise around the world package if hubby is going to say buy it.

  4. Unfortunately hubby wouldn't say buy it if I was looking at any of those things!

    I'm actually wearing my Born in the USA shirt right's exactly what I was wearing when I met squid1 in fact :D

A T-Shirt That Says No!

This is definitely my t-shirt of the day, actually it might be my t-shirt of the month or maybe it just caught me in the right mood, but I found this shirt really funny when I saw it.

I am personally waiting for someone to ask me a question that I have to say no to as I love the 'Smart Alex' reply.
A big thanks to George Takei for linking to it on Facebook, it's made my morning and hopefully it's made your too.

Angry Birds T-Shirts

Looking for an Angry Birds T-Shirt? Well I have a few for you so let's start looking at them -

Buy This A is for Anger is a pretty good logo for these birds because they are the Angry Birds!

You see the Pigs have stolen their eggs and so they have to destroy the pigs which is where you come in.............if you haven't played Angry Birds before you're probably wondering what I'm going on about.
In the popular game you basically have to catapult the Angry Birds so that they destroy all of the pigs (or monkeys depending on which Angry Birds game you have).

Angry Birds have become huge, the premise of the game is very simple and yet somehow it's touched gamers in a way that similar games such as Crush the Castle have been unable to which has resulted in a range of different Angry Birds merchandise including some awesome Angry Birds t-shirts.

Z Nation T-Shirts

I'm really enjoying the zombie series Z Nation at the moment so I thought I'd check out what t-shirts were available, as I do. I was quite disappointed to find that I could only find a couple online. Here's the two I've found in case you're looking for some as well -

Z Nation Greetings From T-ShirtZ Nation Unisex Road Sign T-Shirt

If you're a Z Nation fan if looks like that's all you can get, but luckily there are still lots of other zombie shirts around.

You can find other zombie television or movie shirts such as Shaun of the Dead or The Walking Dead. Then there are the hoards of different Zombie t-shirts and Zombie Apocalypse tees that you can find.

Basically if you love zombies you can find a t-shirt that shows it off to the world.....just not a lot in the way of Z Nation, perhaps the zombie baby from episode one scared the pants off of the t-shirt designers (I'll be honest I never want to see a zombie baby again!).
